Sections 20 & 21 are PL OK.

This author was NOT a fan of the USA, that's for sure!

Here's section 1, duration 23:54

https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/constitution_01_bagehot_128kb.mp3

I'm requesting a two-week extension on parts 2, 3 and 4.

checker shows:
volume 90.0 dB,
background noise 24.2
DC offset -0.0001%

As a matter of course, should I leave it at 90.0 dB, or try to reduce it to 89.0dB? I live in a very noisy environment and cleaning up the noise is my big obstacle, so after all I've done to the file I'm a little leery of over-processing it and acquiring audio artifacts.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Regarding the volume, 90 decibel is perfectly fine. We accept recording volumes from ca. 86 to 92 decibel, so whenever the checker says your volume is fine it is fine :)

Regarding background noise, we generally accepted a little room noise if it cant easily be cleared out. Just as you said, the sound quality can really get worse with extra noise cleaning, so sometimes, a little background noise is better than an extra round of noisecleaning. Kristin will give you her opinion when she gets the chance :)

Also, no problem to get an extension :thumbs:

Section 1 is PL OK!

Either my hearing is going, or there wasn't any background noise to speak of. Whatever you've done, keep up the good work!

Just checking in to say I haven't died and parts 2, 3 and 4 are still in-work, albeit slowly, slowly.
